iLep Update

Modular effects app iLep was updated with 3 new sets by composer Thomas Kessler.

What's new in iLep v1.1:

The update comes with several bugfixes and improvements and 3 Sets by Swiss composer Thomas Kessler.

Thomas Kessler is a pioneer of electronic music. In the 70ies he was director of Elektronik Beat Studio Berlin and music director of the Centre Universitaire International de Formation et de Recherche Dramatiques in Nancy. From 1973 to 2000 he taught composition and music theory at the Basel Music Academy and created the well-known Electronic Studio Basel. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Kessler_(composer))

As a composer of numerous instrumental chamber music, orchestral music and live-electronic music compositions, he is interested in the interactions between musicians and electronics.

iLEP (Live Electronic Patch) is the result of many years of collaboration between Thomas Kessler and software engineers with the aim of creating a live-electronic instrument. The first version of LEP was developed in Max-MSP by Wolfgang Heiniger. Thomas Seelig redesigned the original version and ported it to the iPad. Oliver Greschke joined later to help complete the app.

The 3 new iLep Sets by Thomas Kessler were written for his composition BERCEUSE (2018). They were originally designed to be played with an acoustic instrument or voice, but of course any audio source will work with them.

Here is a video which is quickly introducing one Set: https://youtu.be/c9VlYOi9HFY

Developer Oliver Greschke did his first tutorial with a voice over to show off the patching process in iLep!

LayR Tutorials

Developer Living Memory released an 11 part tutorial series for their excellent LayR app. He also taught me a new British term: Lurgy, the definition of which has made me want to listen to a 1950's British Radio Show starring Peter Sellers.

This has been an immensely educational and edifying video series and I haven't even started watching them!

Video Description:

These videos cover nearly all of LayR's main features.
There are also lots of hints and tips that might not be so obvious just by playing around with LayR's UI or reading the manual.

Some are very short, only a few minutes, others such as the Layer Editor and Arpeggio Sequencer videos are up to an hour long.

With perfect timing the Great British Summer Flu Lurgy also decided to attack me as I was doing these vids so please excuse my narration as I was pretty much working through a thick haze!
